Happy Halloween!

Friday, October 31, 2014

Happy Halloween Friday! How fun is it to have Halloween on a weekend day?  I won't be dressing up today, but check out some of my old costumes here! Hope you all have a great day and enjoy the last of my Halloween cards!

I combined these two challenges to create this fun (and not scary) card for National Trick or Treat Day!

'Tis the Season

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

Sorry for two posts in one day. I had to get this posted so I could enter the card before the challenge closes tomorrow morning. Even thought we may still be months from Christmas (and only two days from Halloween), I've decided to get a jump on my Christmas cards when inspiration hits me, rather than rushing around at the last minute. I really love the black, white, red, and gold look, so I tried it out on this card and love how it turned out!

I used two card-making challenges (and inspiration from one of the challenge entries) to create this graphic card. I made the deer silhouettes out of the same printable vinyl that I made the eye glass art out of a few months ago (and that I used in a gift tag exchange that I haven't shared yet).

The first challenge is the CAS(E) this Sketch! Challenge:

The other challenge is from the Christmas Card Challenge with the theme Anything Goes!

I always love looking through the entries others have submitted before getting started on my card. My thought is that any little bit of inspiration helps! I absolutely love this card that was shared at the CAS(E) this Sketch! link up and used it as inspiration while creating my card.

I love the negative cutout and tried to emulate that in my card. I also purchased the 'Tis the Season cut file from the Silhouette Store, even though I am pining for this Avery Elle Season's Greetings die cut (hint, hint - for Christmas).

So, as we get pretty darn close to the kick off of the winter holidays, I say - 'Tis the Season!

Happy National Cat Day!

Today is National Cat Day and there's no better reason to get back into blogging than to celebrate my fur family! After a nice vacation back to Montana to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday, real life kicked me in the rear in the form of a Monday full of flat tire repair, a chirping smoke detector, and a water line break- topped off with the start of a head cold. But I think I'm on the up and up now.

Anyway, you all know how much I love my Ricky and Odo. So much more than having a dog in my life right now. They have recently started to curl up and sleep with me at night, so I love them even more now!

So, in honor of National Cat Day, think about adopting a cat, I promise you that they will be your new lifelong best friend!

Black Graphic Birthday Card

Monday, October 20, 2014

Happy Monday, my readers! I hope you had a great weekend! My sister's birthday is this week, so I pulled out my card-making supplies to make her a card and just couldn't turn the creativity off! I ended up making four cards - one of them being this graphic birthday card!

I was inspired by this week's My Favorite Things sketch:

I'm not sure if this will be the card I send to my sister, but I'd better decide soon as I only have a day to get it into the mail! Whoops!
